Fractured in this Killing Scene


Fractured in this Killing Scene is now also available in paperback from my eStore and should be on Amazon USA in the next week or so.


Rab and Tam are two Jack the Lads who like fun, women, and drink, in whatever order they appear. Unfortunately, they are unready yet to face the challenges and responsibilities that confront them in adult life.
Each has their own major situation to contend with, and how they each cope and come to terms with these challenges dictates the kind of people they will eventually become...
Fractured In This Killing Scene takes us on a journey through a society where violence, death, bullying, and a lack of opportunities, leads to indifference and apathy. However dark life becomes though, there is always a spark of light and humour that ignites anew a faith in humanity and the world.

More Prose Pieces...

Published another couple of pieces of short prose on the website, under the Short Stories tab.

Called 'Some Quiet Time' and 'No Rent to Pay'

I also added a few more pages of 'Stories of Joe', under the Novels tab.

Also, put in better links (more visible, I suppose) on the sidebar for my online graphic design stores, another form of my creative escapism!

Is it possible to write a book in one day?

Is it possible to write a book in one day?

Yes, it is, I did it, and not only did I write it in one day, I sent a draft copy to a few respected people, got enough positive feedback that I decided to publish. So, I edited it the following day, proof read it the next day and designed the cover, and today, four days later it is now a published work and can be bought in paperback.

But, that is not possible, surely?

Ah, but it is, and here is the book below. If there is enough interest I may do a step by step on the blog on how I did it. Of course, it is not a novel, it is a book of inspiration, at least to me, and hopefully to others, and I would think most people would appreciate something in the text.

Here is the blurb!

This is a book to hopefully encourage and inspire. This is not designed as a self-help book, or a book that will change your life, or even a book that will help anyone to come to terms with difficulties in their own life at this particular moment in time.
I wrote this book as an inspiration to myself, and as I believe it to help me in that regard, then perhaps it may do the same for others who read it.
Everyone is welcome to take as much or as little from the text as they want. There is nothing religious, or fundamentally godly in anyway whatsoever in this text, except perhaps, in the general message which I would like to convey to anyone that would listen, and that is to be nice to other people, and respect other people, and hope that in doing so you will be liked and respected in return. Inspire and encourage others, and in return, you may be inspired and encouraged yourself.
I wish you well.

And here is the book:
 I hope to bring out an eBook version soon, but at least for this week anyway, it is only available in paperback!

Ha Ha New Blog...

Well, as you no doubt know, if you've come from my website, this is the blog promised for a while now up and running. I will be regularly updating it with news and snippets of my writing, and probably a load of nonsense as well.

So, welcome, if this is your first visit, and please check back again often. I have also got around to creating twitter and facebook accounts for Stevie Mach, so click the buttons on your right if you've a mind, thanks.

When Pigs Fly Does Mud Fall As Rain?

Sometimes, you notice that a few years have gone by and you still haven't got round to creating that website and putting all your leisurely ramblings on the ether to the view and critique of the rest of the world. A year or two later, and you decide to make that particular enterprise a priority, after all, time is moving on...

Distractions abound; other necessities of life conspire to drain you of time, and edge you not so gently forward along another path. It dawns on you at last that you will never get around to doing what you thought was so essential in your youth, so you let more time drift by, and pretty soon, all is forgotten except once in a while a nagging sensation of positivity comes forth to the surface of the mind, it is now the time for action!

So, leap forward approximately twenty years, yes, twenty, more or less, and probably for most of what is on this site at the moment, more rather. The recklessness of youth has gone, replaced with a middle age of knowledge of what responsibility and commonsense are; still little knowledge of much else perhaps, but nevertheless, a bit of creative drive still exists and is gushing forth as the development of this website will justify.

Preamble over, let's get down to the nitty-gritty, what is it all about? Well, posted within, are some of my early creative writing efforts, including short stories, poetry, and novel writing. Please peruse to your hearts content and hopefully something in the prose may strike a chord in your heart, or affect you in some sort of way that does more good than harm to your emotional state. Hopefully you will return and journey with me as the site, and my writing develops. If one or two do so, then I will deem this project worthwhile, thank you.
